HED: Residents warned about phone scam

Northeast Mississippi residents are being warned of a telephone scam in which someone posing as a BellSouth representative offers a 35 percent savings on long-distance service, but first the victim has to give the caller a bank account number.

Northern District Public Service Commissioner Bo Robinson said people should hang up and call his office at 1-800-356-6428 if contacted with such an offer.

“We are investigating each call that comes in,” Robinson said.
